Wallpaper loved the new Un Jardin Après La Mousson by Hermès and took the opportunity of the recent launch to ask in-house perfumer Jean-Claude Ellena some questions about his creative process.....
"If you had to choose, which is your favourite creation?
I don’t want to choose as I feel the best is still to create. I would also prefer being judged on my whole work and not just on some of them.
Which fragrances, from other perfumers, do you admire?
I admire mainly the old Guerlain fragrances. They’re the complete opposite of the ones I create and this makes them wonderful."
